"Adding water only dilutes the strength of the whisky."

I've found that on visits to distilleries it has been generally recommenended that the product is best taken with just a small dash of water. Supposedly the small infusion of water opens up the aromas and taste. Personally I prefer to take it completely straight - and no doubt others prefer just a bit of whisky with their water. Ones own perogative I suppose. I wouldn't think of putting anything expensive in a whisky mac though. The ginger overpowers the whisky anyway so a bog standard blend will suffice. I believe whisky and coke is popular amongst young drinkers in Spain. Again I suspect you'd might as well put any bog standard blend in that too.
